Editorial﹕Unfair allocation of swimming pool lanes

【明報專訊】IN public swimming pools, lanes are rented to swimming clubs that offer swimming lessons, and that helps the promotion of swimming as a sport. However, an investigation by this newspaper has found that the fairness of the mechanism for renting out lanes is questionable. Furthermore, though swimming clubs enrol students, it is private companies which collect the fees. It is open to question whether such a practice is in compliance with the requirements that a non-profit group is required to meet.
